Attention local film fanatics, the Orillia Opera House is hosting a movie premiere to launch the inaugural Orillia International Film Festival.
Local filmmaker Jake Horowitz directed “Who You Know”, a feature film shot mostly in Orillia last Summer about an aspiring screenwriter who writes a romantic-comedy script about his idol’s daughter, in the hopes that it will get him a leg-up in showbiz. The film is currently touring film festivals all over North America and will be released on Crave in March but before that, there will be a special screening at the Orillia Opera House on December 4th at 7 PM. The cast and crew will be in attendance so it’s a fantastic opportunity to support local filmmakers and pick their brains after the show.
The screening will also serve as a kick-off for the brand new Orillia International Film Festival which will open submissions and announce details about the first festival set for September 2020.
